Meet Mwanamisi. She is the first of her family to graduate high school. She comes from a broken home and lives in an at-risk area, yet she has changed the cycle of poverty in her life. She is now studying at a graduate beauty school so she can learn a trade and generate income. We are so proud of her hard work and dedication to her future. Stories like hers give us a reason to get up and keep going every day.
Have you ever wondered what a typical home might look like in our area? This is home to one of our eighth grade girls. She, her mother and her 3 siblings all share the bed, and sleep under the tattered mosquito net. Before sponsorship, her mother struggled to provide food for the kids, but now they get 2 hot meals a day, which is a big blessing to the whole family.
Our kids love getting letters from their sponsors! They go over each word carefully, sounding out the English and practicing their letters. It’s precious to see how much they treasure these letters. It means so much to them knowing that someone on the other side of the world is praying and cheering them on.
